I came to HSS as this is the best hospital as far as I am concerned. I had 2 successful knee replacements and when my back started to hurt from operations when I was younger, I called HSS and got a recommendation to see pain management physician, Dr. Hung. Dr. Hung knew exactly what I was explaining to him regarding my situation and made a recommendation for some shots that virtually eliminated the pain. I would recommend anyone having pain, especially in the back, to see Dr. Hung first before thinking about surgery. He will be open and honest and has the well-being of the patient first in mind.
